, um, in california we haven't adopted charter schools and vouchers and choice as much as you have experienced in washington d.c. my belief is that when we introduce choice, um, the public schools will rise, the bar will rise for the public schools because then they have to keep up with the charter schools and the voucher schools that parents elect to go to. is that a belief that you experienced in washington, d.c.? what happened to the public schools and how they performed when that 42% that you mentioned earlier came into place? >> yeah, it absolutely makes a difference. i don't think that you can have reform in education without choice, and frankly, without choice there won't be an incentive for the bureaucracy to change. i mean, look, it's easy for people to fall into the category of, you know, you're bashing teachers. they say if you want change, you push the change, you're not supporting public schools. i support public schools. when i was in office, i gave the teachers the largest raise they ever got. i gave the schools more money than they asked for, and over the period of

in pleasanton, california. hi there. caller: i got through after months of trying. host: glad you made it. caller: me, too. i was about to give up. anyhow, i think the federal government makes a guarantee in all these loans they have been doing. when they do that, the banks, the loners, do not have to worry about it. it is the same thing with public employee pension funds. they're claiming that they're getting 7.5%. so when they lose money, they ask the public to repay them money for their pension, and i do not think that is right. that has got to stop. the other thing is, the housing market was going crazy because people were buying homes and reselling them at greater profit, and they were bragging about all of this. host: ok, let's go to nick timiraos and get a response. guest: it is a very common view. people on both sides of the aisle often say we like to see the government not play this role bang in the housing market. some say the government should play no role b. if you look at the history of federal involvement in the mortgage market, it goes back to the depression, and we really

a senator in ohio. >> host: new york is the biggest state. >> guest: like california today. seward is the founding father of the republican party. this is only the second presidential election the republican party participated in. seward is the dominant figure in the republican party. it's sort of his -- he is more significant than any two other figures in the party combined. chase, another alternative, is the man chiefly responsible for the republican party's power in ohio and, in fact, much of the midwest -- >> host: also a big state. >> guest: even in those days as it is today, and, still, perhaps america's one -- one of america's most famous anti-slavery advocates, a radical abolitionist. he didn't start that way, but at this point he was. seward, not radical on anti-slavery issues was perceived that way because of a series of speeches he gave viewed as inflammatory. lincoln, on the other hand, because he did not have a national record, could convincingly portray himself as the least radical. in those days, the least anti-slavery republican, up for the race. they go it, and sew
